Dear Community Member,
Last month the City announced a plan to establish three additional sanctioned encampments to serve homeless people. That plan calls for creating a low-barrier encampment at 8620 Nesbit Ave North that would have 50 tiny homes serving between 60-70 people. Sanctioned encampments are a temporary measure to provide people living without shelter a safer alternative place to live while caseworkers help them secure long-term stable housing. Here is the FAQ sheet distributed previously.
The City hosted a public meeting on December 14th to describe the plan and to listen to community concerns. The City is hosting a second public meeting on Tuesday, February 7th to provide further information and to address concerns that have been raised. We encourage you to attend.
